the day ends as it begins - in a glory of colour and light - and then also in hushed surroundings redolent with soft laughter, glimpses of a world entirely present in a moment . . . gifts . . . the simple joys of love, kindness, care, goodness . . . i take none of this for granted, merely reporting to you that it is all present . . . it is all possible . . . it does require work to welcome it all . . . noble honest work.
